One of the region’s main multi-purpose stadiums is ready for action after a significant upgrade.

The Caloundra Indoor Stadium is better equipped to host sports competitions, exhibitions and shows after it underwent a full roof replacement.

Division 2 Councillor Terry Landsberg said the facility was a hub for activities on the Sunshine Coast.

“Caloundra Indoor Stadium is a mecca for indoor sports and events in our region,” he said.

“With the works completed, it will provide an enhanced experience for the tens of thousands of competitors, spectators and visitors who will use the facility now and into the future.

“As part of the roof replacement, 150kW of solar panels will also be installed on the roof, which is a major win for council’s ongoing sustainability objectives.”

About $1.3 million was in the 2022-23 budget to repair the roof structure and sheeting at the stadium, funded by the state government in association with council.

The stadium will host the Regional Disability Expo on October 19, the Just Acrobatics Expo on November 11 and the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Sunshine Coast Championships on December 3.

Pickleball is among the many sports played at the centre.

Casual sporting enthusiasts have also been invited to the stadium and try something new, to improve their fitness and meet new friends.

Popular activities include pickleball ($15.75 per court per hour, BYO paddle), badminton ($19.50 per court per hour, BYO racket), casual basketball ($5.25 per person per hour, BYO ball); casual netball ($5.25 per person per hour, BYO ball).

There is also badminton on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to noon ($8.50 per player, BYO racket) and walking netball on Wednesdays from 10am to 11am ($5.25 per player).
